Page 34 On February 22 and 23, about 60 members took part in a community planning workshop to consider the future look of Pelican Bay and the role of Design Guide-lines. The workshop took the form of a “charrette,” a series of sessions that engage par-ticipants in discussions and evaluations as part of devel-oping design solutions. The charrette was led by Celine Gladwin, Partner at BFB Gladwin Architects. For the past year, she and her team have been document-ing the elements of land use, building design and land-scaping that help to define the character of Pelican Bay. The project was spurred by a desire to strengthen the Foundation’s ability to respond to intensifying development pressures. The most immediate challenge is the wave of renovations, demolitions and rebuilds seen in Pelican Bay’s single family developments. How-ever, redevelopment is likely to emerge as a factor for multifamily developments also, as properties start to show their age. OVERVIEW AND COMMUNITY TOUR The workshop began with a general introduction to the project. This included a review and compilation of the laws and regulations that govern land use and develop-ment in Pelican Bay, as well as an inventory of all exist-ing properties with photo documentation. With this information in hand, the next step is to draft design guide-lines that can help ensure the compatibility of future development with the high quality evidenced in Pelican Bay’s original design. There were several ques-tions at the outset about the relationship of design guide-lines to Pelican Bay’s existing codes and covenants, which require Foundation review and approval of building and landscaping projects. It was explained that the purpose is to assist the Foundation in exercising its approval auth or ity b y pr o vid ing more specific guidelines that amplify the general provisions set out in the continued on page 3 > ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY TIPS Important information to ensure that you stay safe while enjoying all the com-munity has to offer.
